Like many millions of people, I watch the x factor every year. I swear I won't as nothing much comes of it really I believe, but inevitably I get sucked in- it's so hard to avoid..

Apart from Leona Lewis, I feel little in the way of long term talent has ever been found - and I'm even disillusioned with her now - she may have the raw talent (the voice) but she hasn't had the material yet (apart from Bleeding Love and Run).

So, I have to say Diana Vickers has taken me by surprise and I suspect a lot of other people who had forgotten her... and it is a refreshingly pleasant one at that...

I liked her voice initially during the x factor- it is so unique- but I kinda tired of her during the show- I recall her being sick and off form for many weeks. Then it felt like she was looking for the sympathy vote and stuff... she did get a hard time though- with the whole claw and marmite stuff... so it is testament to her strength of character that now well over a year and half later, she delivers a cracking debut album she should be proud of.

When I heard ONCE last month - I was intrigued but not sold yet... it is an insanely catchy pop tune- the way good pop always is, short, snappy- with a chorus that gets engrained in your brain for hours... and it was perfect choice for lead single- a real edgy, rocking number.

But I found on Youtube some other songs that made me go out and buy the album yesterday... and I haven't been disappointed..

The Boy Who Murdered Love - has to be next single- another great pop song- less rocky than Once, but it too boasts a fabulous chorus that won't leave you...

Put It back Together Again- written by the hugely talent but sadly underrated Nerina Pallot (check out her latest - The Graduate)...

I'm not normally into the X-Factor contestant albums. Its' very much a show that is highly watchable as a TV programme but musically it ends up giving us mostly very average forgettable artists. The exception being Leona - who although hugely talented has suffered from releasing largely forgettable music (except bleeding love of course) JLS have done well chart wise but muscially again have released some pretty forgettable pop music as has alexandra burke. So along now comes Diana Vickers who was in the x factor 2008 along with JLS and Alexandra. Vickers was widly thought to release music pretty quickly after the show ended but instead decided to take her time in making a great album she was happy with along with starring in a west end show. It's a decision that has largely paid off as she has crafted a very accomplished pop album working alongside writers/producers like Cathy dennis (Kylie), Ellie Goulding and Guy Sigsworth (Madonna,Frou frou) The album is very much in the tone/style of Ellie Gouldings album which is no surprise as she co-writes 1 track on here. If you like the single "Once' then you know what style the album is in but it does deviate a couple of times into ballad and folk/Indie terratory.

The first few tracks are all excellent from Once to The Boy Who Murded Love etc the album sags in the middle a little with a couple of forgettable tracks like me and you which is the albums low point. The last half though is the strongest in my opinion. Tracks like "Numb" a stomping catchy ballad is the sort of song Leona would kill simon cowell for..probably a future single "My Hip" is a catchy electro pop number kylie wouldnt turn down.

Now there's always the risk that I'm biased here, I've been an avid supporter of Diana's since the judge's houses of X-Factor way back in 2008 and the wait for this album was killed me, but I'm going to write a review anyway.

The album shows that if you take time you can produce a really good, original sound for yourself. It's common of X-Factor alums to quickly jump straight into recording what they think is their genre without really giving it much thought. Diana has confessed herself this is not the sort of album she originally thought she'd make but she experimented with her sound and worked with lots of different song writers and producers. The result is the interestingly titled 'Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree'.

1) Her debut single 'Once' opens the album, an electropop masterpiece written by Cathy Dennis and Eg White. It works well as a debut, smashing her back on the scene after a very long hiatus from the music industry (she took a break to take the lead role in the west end production of 'The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice', to rave reviews I must add!) and the accompanying video shows Diana for the superstar she is.

2) Next up is 'Remake Me And You' which seems to have divided her fans a little. Just like Diana herself the song is very marmite. It was written by Diana and Ellie Goulding and you can hear the latters influences clearly in the song. It's another electropop song and is very uptempo. Personally I think it's one of the best songs on the whole record but others have commented on it being their least favourite. Definately one to check out whether you're a fan of Vickers or not.
